Creative. Spiritual. Spunky. These are the qualities Leslieann brings to her classes as she guides students through asanas that strive to connect mind, body, and spirit. With an open heart, kind words, and a little silliness, she works to create a safe space that nurtures and heals. She teaches Vinaysa classes that unite breath with movement, focusing on the Universal Principles of Alignment to ensure the safety of her students.
A poet all her life and a yoga practitioner since 2004, Leslieann has come to discover that creative writing and the practice of yoga are inextricably linked: both create and sustain deep connections to the spiritual Self. Calling on mystic poets, Rumi and Hafiz, she aspires to share this gift with her students both on and off the mat.
She is grateful for this path that yoga has taken her thus far and is indebted to her teachers:
Shannon Elliott, Jane Lindemann, and Gabi Perrotti.
Leslieann completed her 200-hr teacher training at Onyx Yoga Studio in Warren, NJ, studying with Shannon Elliott, Jane Lindemann, and Gabi Perrotti. She also completed her certification in Kundalini Yoga, training with Mahan Rishi Singh Khalsa and Nirbhe Kaur Khalsa. A Yoga Alliance-registred teacher, she is also certified in healing and recovery yoga from Kula for Karma in Franklin Lakes, NJ.
